Toshiba Portege Z830 Ultrabook Review

 

Ultrabooks are a fun little accessory if you're rich and have money to throw around. In fact they are more than just something you flaunt around, but sadly, not everyone can afford it right now as they still have a long way to go before they can reach...

Holding the ‘world’s lightest’ Ultrabook title does come at a price. The Z830 will set you back a whopping Rs.96,290, which makes it expensive. More so, because you can easily get an Ultrabook at this price with a Core i7 CPU and a larger SSD, but, you...

Review Toshiba Satellite Z830-10J Ultrabook

 

Light as a feather. The power of a big notebook, but as light as

Extremely light for 13.3 inches; Rigid within the realms of what's possible; Fingerprint resistant surfaces; Comparatively many ports; Many ports at the rear; Good keyboard; High application performance; Full performance on battery power possible; Low...

Permanently audible fan; No docking option; Weak colors, viewing angles on the TFT; Built-in battery; Moderate battery life; Stiff mouse keys

The Acer Aspire S3, the Asus Zenbook UX31 (13.3 inch), UX21 (11.6 inch) and the Lenovo U300s are immediate contenders. Non-ultrabook contenders would be the MacBook Air 13, Lenovo X1, Dell Inspiron 14z and Samsung Series 9 900X3A.

Toshiba Portege Z830-S8302

 

The Toshiba Portege Z830-S8302 is a slim, speedy ultrabook that may be a little too light and too pricey for mass appeal.

Svelte magnesium alloy design. Backlit keyboard. Lighter chassis, complete with more I/O ports than any other ultrabook. SD card slot. WiDi 2.0 video streaming

Expensive. Wobbly screen. Finicky keyboard. Non-removable battery

Toshiba Portege Z835 review

 

Toshiba should know a thing or two about skinny, featherweight laptops. Back in 2007, the company unveiled the Portege R500, a 2.4-pound laptop

Aggressively priced ; Long battery life ; Lightweight, even for an Ultrabook ; Wide selection of ports, backlit keyboard

Performance trails other Ultrabooks ; Poor viewing angles ; Dated design, minor build quality issues

Lightest. Least expensive. Best selection of ports. There are tons of reasons to love this aggressively priced Ultrabook, though its dated design and so-so performance will turn off some shoppers.

Toshiba Portégé Z830 Ultrabook Review

 

Ultrabook perfection. Almost.

Very slim and light, Unibody design, Remains cool, Sturdy chassis, Good battery life

Slightly expensive, Fan makes noise when rear vent covered

Starting up the Z830 I noticed two things: how incredibly fast it is, and how much bloatware Toshiba has added on it. Windows 7 (Home Premium) actually boots up in 11 seconds flat thanks to the internal 128GB SSD. Obviously the Intel Core i5-2467M...

Toshiba Portege Z835 Ultrabook

 

Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

Toshiba Portege Z830-10N review

 

A thin-and-light Ultrabook that deserves its label

Good performance ; Thin and light ; 128GB SSD ; Batter life ; WiDi compatible

Toshiba Satellite Z830-10U review

 

An excellent ultraportable, but not the best you can buy

Light and slim ; Good keyboard and touchpad ; Impressive speakers ; Good performance ; Plenty of connectivity

Flimsy screen ; Too much bloatware ; Boxy design ; Quite pricey ; Matt screen will disappoint some

The Satellite Pro Z830-10U is one of the best ultrabooks we've yet seen, and certain features, such as connectivity and touchpad usability, outshine all its rivals. However, there are still niggling issues such as build quality and excessive bloatware...
